Up until this point, the frequent bickering, while sometimes unpleasant, has been forgiveable on the grounds that such tiffs probably reflect 'real' every day life. But this is fundamentally different from arguing about ninnies and what should be posted where.

I have nothing new to add to this debate and can only reiterate what so many others have said. I, like so many others, feel let down. I feel as though I'm being judged as inadequate, not so much for not having been invited but more from the apparent 'cover up' that has been conducted since the demise of one - and possibly two - secret rooms.
OK, my music posts probably are inadequate so being invited to the experimental stage of an exclusive music-only forum is a non-starter. I accept that. Moreover, I quite like the idea of the designated room.

What I dislike is the sneaky way these snakes in the grass have conducted themselves with their apparent secretiveness regarding the whole affair. I'm made to feel inadequate in that I'm not even worth informing about the place [places?] I'm not invited to enter. The room itself is not the problem for me - I'm even content to be excluded - it's the perfidious way it's been handled.

Others have posted that this thing is not important. With respect, you are either posters who mostly haven't met these people or you are mixed up in the debacle. One or two of the 'members' have spoken openly about your involvement and that's fair enough nut you've held your silence hitherto and I find that worrying. Others admit to their involvement but refuse to see the damage it's done. Others are involved with the protagonists so don't really know where their loyalties lie.

But there are, no doubt, others who've been involved who've also remained silent and continue to do so. And I don't know who you are. And you might be someone I've previously considered a friend but now I can't trust you and I don't know who you are so I no longer feel at ease on here as I did.

It is important because so many of us know each other so well [or thought we did, at least]

I've made a clumsy mess of this post but I'm more than a little drunk.

It's boring, I know but I had to add my disgust just so that people know where I stand. I want to be as clear in my disapproval as Griff, DD, Lenny.
I don't want others to doubt me in the way that I'm doubting others.

No doubt I'll be accused of overreaction or hysteria in some quarters but whoever does this is failing to see just how much damage has been caused here with these revelations.

Something sinister has happened to this place in the last couple of days. It's not the same.

I'm not saying, necessarily, that this is goodbye but I'm certainly taking stock of my feelings regarding this board.


top post, footy.

so, this is where arrogant elitism eventually takes us. valued members of the board suddenly doubting where they stand with their friends and even considering their future with regard to the board.

sad times, indeed.

I wonder what would have happened if they got into an argument in the secret room. Would they form a secret room within the secret room and exclude the people they were fighting with?

Who exactly was supposed to tell who. I told several people. I didn't run out and start an open thread or conversations with people i dont regularly speak to but i told people i was having in depth PM conversations with and I sat in several pubs and discussed it. There are a handful of people i regret not telling sooner but to be completely honest a number of the people who have complained loudest aren't actually among them, they may well have closer friends who knew and didn't tell them but thats a different issue. There is a middle ground between holding your silent and just shit stirring.

A fuck load of people knew about one or other room and it didn't come into the public domain till this week. Since this thread came up a bunch of people have admitted coming across the second one which i didn't learn of till this week. There was no outing of that one either.

I can understand people being angry, people who were specifically excluded and people who have interacted with the principles on a personal level in the intervening time, that includes you I would guess so i can understand your response. Anything beyond that is soap opera hysterics

I appreciate, Owen and you have said as much, that you were not in a comfortable position with this. But that only adds to the general distaste of the whole matter.
